Released initially as a private track to their Soundcloud fans a month early (in case of a Mayan Apocalypse success), Work Drugs‘ new track has now officially spread across the internet for all ears to enjoy.
Everyone knows (//holds up Hipster Cred Certificate//) that I’ve been a big fan of the surf-rockers since they came into the scene way back in 2010. They are one of the most prolific bands out there (releasing a free download each month to their fans) and their tracks are always killer.
“Young Lungs” is certainly the clearest manifestation of the band’s progress in two years from lo-fi electro to dance rockers. While the band’s tracks usually exude a restrained energy, “Young Lungs” is bursting with an uncharacteristically high energy. Coupled with lyrics like, “You don’t know where I’ve been/You don’t know what I’ll be/Just to not be an asterisk in the storyboard”, their new track enters full blown anthem mode while keeping the surfer romance that serves them so well.
Oh, and did I mention there is a killer sax solo in the song? I love me some good sax any day.
Check out more at their Soundcloud and look for their new album, Delta, which was released earlier this month.
